, late spring/early summer, to make funds available explicitly and only for youth fare program, both here and in san josÉ. that did not get the approval of the mtc. around that same time the mta board approved our two year budget for the mta. month youth fare pilot that would provide for free fare or zero dollar fare for low income youth contingent on funding froñ mtc. the understanding at that time that it would be this funding spring/early summer that was available only for that use. the tpi program has made funding available for that use but it's available for other uses as well and we could use all or none of it arguably for the youth fare part of this. but i do want to point out again that increased ridership was one of the main goals of the tpi program and a larger -- i think it was called transit sustainability project that mtc undertook for a couple of years, out of which came the tpi. so it's on that basis that we're making the recommendations that we are going to be making. >> supervisor wiener: mr. risken would you agree improving muni's reliant would increase ridership if it

of you in the united states and around the world. i'm fareed zakaria. in two days america will pick its president for the next four years. we'll take two different looks at this moment in time. first a global perspective. we've assembled experts from europe, middle east, and asia to tell us how the rest of the world sees this election. then i have a panel of distinguished historians, walter isa isaacson, sean wilentz and edmund morris to look at an eye to the past. what do past campaigns and past presidents tell us about this nail-biter? also americans might be anxious to learn tuesday's results of the chinese are even more anxious, perhaps, to learn who their new leaders will be, why they might have more at stake than we do. but first here's my take. whoever wins the election on tuesday, on wednesday either barack obama or mitt romney will have to start worrying about the same urgent challenge, how to stop the united states from falling over the fiscal cliff. this is, of course, the second cliff hanger that the united states has faced in two years, the first being the debt ceiling deba
